was inspired to vote after president obama won four years ago and says she promised herself if she lived to see another election, she would vote. she requested a ballot by mail yesterday. a family friend helped her fill it out and turn it in. >>> thank you very much. in 2008, young voters were a driving force in barack obama's victory. today, 40% of the u.s. population is now 30 years old and under. for each presidential candidate, it's the largest demographic up for grabs. the bigger question, will these voters show up at the polls next tuesday? joining us this morning, vice president of young democrats of america, and chairman of d.c. young republicans. thank you boeing for coming in. appreciate it. >> thanks for having us. >> that last thing i mentioned, let me start with that. kate, i'll start with you, do you think that the young vote is going to turn out in force this year? they did four years ago. >> i think there's no question that four years ago the youth vote turned out in droves. a lot of that was because we had a dynamic candidate obama making promises that really resonated with the
of the campaign. obama rallies are shouting "four more years, four more years." i heard you. you're shouting "four more days." he said he would lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.2% right now. today we learned it's actually 7.9%. that is 9 million short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> dana: all right. that was governor mitt romney in wisconsin earlier today reacting to the jobs report, that came out earlier in morning. the president however sees it differently. take a listen. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars and worst economic crisis since the great depression. today, businesses created 5.5 million new jobs. this morn we learned the company hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> dana: all right. so that is the closing arguments in the last four days, everyone is happy. four days to go. 171,000 jobs created in october. the number, however, for the unemployment rate went from 7.8% to 7.9%. greg, thoughts on this. >> greg: i don't know how you call it a recovery when unemployment goes up. une
that mayor bloomberg had endorsed president obama four years ago. that is a mistake. even political analysts make mistakes occasionally. he did endorse him and said because of the president's views on the climate change, he is the prominent, the most prominent independent probably in the country and the richest in the country. there was one component that bothers the obama campaign in the most dire state when the president was leading by so many points. independence is trending toward romney, and that is why he's going to pennsylvania to try to get independent votes even though pennsylvania democrats outnumber republicans registered voters by over a million people. he feels the election should be, can be won with independence, and that component is going to romney. >> mark, if we drew lines on that today on the trail map, you would actually see barack obama and mitt romney crisscrossing each other throughout the midwest today. you tend to think it that where they go is where their attentions are at this point. so, how in play are wisconsin and ohio right now as far as swinging this one? >> w
in the community. >> narrator: even after having lived here for years, obama was vulnerable to a charge bobby rush would surely make: he didn't really know these streets, and he's not really an african-american. >> bobby rush called him an educated fool, again trying to sort of cast obama as this overeducated half-white guy from hawaii with this multicultural background. he was not "one of us." >> you can have more degrees than a thermometer, but if you ain't got some power, you ain't got some seniority, if you ain't got what it takes to be a congressman. >> that's always been a subtext of the opposition to him from other black politicians. how dedicated is he to the black struggle? >> despite all our differences, we can live together as one people... >> there's a long article about the race in tchicago reader, the local alternative paper in chicago, where one of obama's opponents, he says, "obama is viewed as the white man in blackface in our community." >> it got bad. it was real bad. a number of black nationalists in the african-american counity, you know, made all sorts of allegations about ba
that the biomimicry folks are chant -- obama folks are chanting four more years, but our chant is five more days. >> reporter: there are still millions of people without power. in new york city, the mayor said it could be until next weekend before some folks in some burrows see their power restored. >>> as the cleanup continues on the east coast, we are getting a better look at how much damage was done by this storm. >> reporter: the damage from sand severy widespread but it appears that -- sandy is very widespread, but it appears that the jersey shore line in particular bore the brunt . this is what a small peninsula looks like, and here it is afterwards. this is what the casino pier in seaside heights, new jersey, looked like before the storm. and here's now. an entire quarter of the pier has been broken off. sheer a bridge to the north, before and after. the storm has washed away the western end of the bridge. there was also a lot of damage and flooding further inland. this is before and now after the storm. the entire wall of this apartment complex has fallen down, and finally this is the en
is not the right guy for another four years. >> first, i truly believe that both president obama and mitt romney want to do a grand bargain, but i don't think they have the same leadership ability to get it done. i think president obama's biggest problem is he's not led. and when he had the senate, the house and the white house, he spent too much time on the affordable care act. that poisoned washington, because even though a majority of the american people doesn't want the affordable care act, nonetheless the effort was taken to pass it on a straight party line vote. that poisoned the well. i think the worst of all scenarios is the house stays in republican hands which it's going to. the senate stays in democratic hands and president obama stays in the white house. we haven't gotten any progress on that in the last two years. why do you think it's different in the next two years? by the way, it's likely that the reps take the senate in 2014. so i think you have to be recognizing reality. it's not just who the president is, although that's by far the most important. it's also who controls the ho
president obama with a late endorsement thursday. he is saying though he found the past four years to be, quote, disappointing, the storm's devastation brought the stakes of tuesday's election, he says, into sharp relief. he then tweeted this, quote. this november vote for a president who will lead on climate change. back to the october jobs status these reports have become the focal point since president obama took office and an important monthly mile marker for judging the state of obama's presidency beyond anything else. there have never been a focus on jobs numbers in a presidency like this one but let's take a look at where we are and where we've been. the newest jobs report shows the unemployment rate at 7.9%. in february, 2009, the president's first full month in office it was 8.3%. in between it's been a rollercoaster ride ever since. in october, 2009 the unemployment rate reached its high point of 10%. last month its lowest point 7.8%. 17 times the unemployment rate went up. 18 times it went down. 9 times it stayed the same. in terms of actual jobs the president has presided ove
in achievements. and four years ago, candidate obama promised to do so very much. but he's fallen so very short. he promised to be a post partisan president. but he became the most partisan, blaming, attacking, dividing. he said he was going to focus on creating jobs. and instead, he focused on obama care, which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half and then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learn that it's actually 7.9% and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. unemployment today is higher than on the day barack obama took office. he promised that he would propose a plan to save social security and medicare from insolvency. he didn't. rather, he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for his obama care. he said he was going to lower health insurance premiums for the average family by $2,500 a year by now. and actually, they are now $3,000 higher for an average family. and gasoline, the american family now
the last four years. i know that the obama folks are chanting four more years. our chant is five more days. >> reporter: at a rally in virginia a campaign cheer was also a reminder of how little time is left. >> five more days. five more days. >> reporter: before the hurricane romney had momentum. the race was in a dead heat and he was tied or within striking distance. but the storm knocked him off the front pages at a crucial time in the race. on monday and tuesday he canceled rallies. back on the trail yesterday in florida he tend down his criticism of the president. today in virginia romney was back on his economic message with sharp attacks on president obama. >> his campaign and his address is about attacking. we actually have a plan to get this economy going top we're going to put it in place to help the american people. >> reporter: now before this storm romney had the lead over the president on questions of which candidate would be a stronger leader and which would be better in working with democrats and republicans. if he loses ground on either one of those questions that could be
growth. the obama team has said the same thing, that they can come up with 12 million in four years. the math works out the same. the economy has to grow at 4%. do you see it happening? i don't so it happening. >> i don't think you quite would need all the way up to 4% growth. let me disagree with you a little there. you've seen over the last 2 1/2 years a rate of job creation that's around 2 million a year. so you would just need 3 million a year. and i think if you got up to 3%, 3.5%, you could see that. over the next 6 to 12 months is your weakest spot in that because, as diane said, you've got china, europe, you've got -- we're getting no extra boost from around the world. and we've got all of these issues of the fiscal cliff, which we've talked about on this show before, ali. if you can get past that first six to 12 months, then you would be a little more confident. >> can i weigh in a little bit on -- i am actually a little more optimistic than austan regardless of who is president. it matters if we get credible deficit reduction out there. what's important is the housing mark
i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >>> this is "world news." tonight, breaking news. cheers erupt in lower manhattan as the power flickers back on. and under a lot of pressure, new york decides late today to pull the plug on the famous new york marathon this weekend. >>> running on empty. endless lines for gasoline. >> seven hours here already. >> people running out of gas. waiting for a few gallons to take home. waiting for the cold night ahead. we get answers. >>> the challenger. four days to go. the second of our personal portraits of the men who want your vote. >>> and, noah's ark? how would you evacuate a 250-pound walrus? how about a giant octopus? we're there, as trainers decide what to do when their aquarium flooded and 12,000 creatures are inside. >>> good evening on this friday night. as we come on the air, there is late news about the devastating storm and one of the biggest athletic events in the world. under enormous pressure, new york has canceled the iconic new y
no change over four years. president obama took office, really, at the worst possible moment in the economic crisis. the details tend to get lost in the political race. >>> thanks, scott. new this morning, the wait is over. the ipad mini hits store shelves this morning and people camped out for the new ipadre lea rele but not as many in the past. bob redell has more. >> reporter: about 50 people lined up in front of the apple store in los gatos this morning. a smaller line than the ones that have gone down the block for previous product releases. why is there not as much excitement? >> because the other tablets are available. you have the kindle and the google. >> reporter: comparable and a $329 price tag for the mini. when the doors opened at 8:00 this morning, price didn't seem to matter. the cash came out in wads. >> i have been waiting for so long to get one and everyone says get a kindle. it doesn't have the same abilities. >> reporter: the mini is half the weight of an ipad and can fit in the palm of your hand. it doesn't understand why israel had his hands full with both. >> travel si
years old, in tears. >> i'm tired of barack obama and mitt romney. >> we spoke to abigail's mom, liz. they told us they don't even have a television. she's upset about the radio. >> she's a swing state. >> the election will be over soon, okay? >> okay. >>> taking a leap of faith. ♪ >> tacos, delicious food. >> thumbs up for me. >> canons can be fun in the right setting. why not combine the two? >> taco cannon? >> this is in austin, texas, and if you look right over here, there's a guy with a taco cannon shooting tacos into this crowd of people. they scramble for a taco that are, of course, wrapped up. what better way to have fun? >> better be really good taco. >> i don't care if it's a mediocre ta mediocre taco. >> baseball games, they shoot the hotdogs. they do this for fun. get free tacos shot at your face. >> that's literally getting your product out there. >> i'm surprised no injuries. >> funny if they shot the tacos, then the hot sauce. next time you're in austin, check it out. get a taco from a cannon. >>> this girl is alaire, she's autistic. one of the things she's found cal
to obama, but i think among the sliver of people who, you know, probably voted for obama four years ago and are not sure now, i think this could help. >> how many do you think there are? >> standing next to chris christie helps. >> -- in cincinnati or waukesha, wisconsin -- >> it helps with the media though. it helps with our point of view. let me ask you, everybody goes by the polls and they tend to be 47/47 which means six people haven't made up their mind. i'm asking you as a pro. aren't there a lot of people who are more like the group you described, voted for obama once, worried about him this time, may go with the other guy if he has a good night. can they come back from the first debate saying i'm back where i was? how many of them are there potentially? >> i think there are some out there. but the question is how many of them have early voted? the proliferation of early voting, there were some voting after the first debate, between the second and third debate. i think there are some of those who are not sure and have been looking for a sign. if you haven't voted sort of right aw
the difference. here's the second point. if it took president obama four years to come up with this lame idea of a secretary of business, i certainly don't want to give him four more years to come up with another lame idea while this economy is still running on fumes. that's the bottom line. bill: he says instead of nine different departments dealing with things like giving loans to small business administration or helping companies with exports you put them all in one department. you're kicking that to the curb. and unemployment rate of 7.9%. does this administration have an effective plan to get america on track, if president obama is awarded a second term on tuesday night? >> the answer is no and i have spent the last two months talking to over 2000 businesses owners and also saying no, president obama does not have a plan. now let's talk about these nine departments. see, here's how this administration works. if president obama gets reelected and install as secretary of business, he is not going to shut down the other nine departments. he will add to the bureaucracy. because see his plan,
. >> there is no question in my view, we can't have four more years like the last four years. i know the obama folks are chanting four more years, four more years. but our chance is five more day, five more days, that's our chant. let me ask you a question. can anybody name our current secretary of commerce? you know why? we don't have one. it's been vacant four months and the president hasn't proposed to put somebody in the job. we need another president! >> in the closing weeks of this campaign, governor romney has been using all of his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. the very same policies we have been cleaning up after the past four years. and he's offering them up as change. >> here's my last question: are you ready for this? are you fired up? are you ready to go! five day, get to work! >> the romney/ryan ticket has persuaded and explained what their plan is. the president's been left just to attack. for him to think or say that -- that it's very difficult to get things done from the inside is pretty telling. he is the president of t
president obama this time than i was four years ago. >> so there you have it, at least in some part former president bill clinton acknowledging this enthusiasm story line that's an undercurrent. you can't deny it. >> i'm so proud to have worked for bill clinton. can i say that on the air? >> are you angling for awe new job? >> he's not running for anything. i remember working for him. he was the same way then as he is today. he's so optimistic, but so are americans. americans are by nature optimistic he people, and that's one of the reasons why this country is so special and has on so many inonovatorinnovators. we're by nature future oriented people. president clinton himself said elections are about the future. they're about whand of future you see. what he articulates is something i think is a bonafide feeling among the democratic race. we are enthusiastic about it. you can feel it. >> he chose an interesting way to articulate it. i am far more enthusiastic about president about obama thavenlt a few years. >> anne it this endorsement by mayor bloomberg surprised everyone yesterday, citin

obama cast himself in the same bipartisan way that appealed to independent voters four years ago. >> over the last four years, the status quo in washington has fought us every step of the way. >> reporter: it would be unusual for a democratic president to actually suggest it would be okay with him if voters went for a congressional candidate other than a democrat. but, eager to paint himself as not part of the problem in washington, the president did just that at every stop. >> as long as i'm president, you know, i've said i will work with anybody of any party to move this country forward. if you want to break the gridlock in congress, you'll vote for leaders who feel the same way whether they're democrat, republican or independent. >> reporter: president obama seemedized and confident today. he actually did a little jig at this last stop here in lima, ohio. obama campaign officials are talking up their early voting program, years in the making. with republicans more reliable election day voters, the argument goes, democrats have built up a bank of early votes, ones that make win
're not dynamic. we're growing at less than 2% after four years of president obama's policies, policies that you helped to write. look, i'm an immigrant to this country and completely be robust and dynamic and expanding and that's what i expect from america and i'm not getting it. >> you're only getting half of that, i agree with that. stuart: yeah. >> because we had a massive bubble that bubble popped, you can't go back to doing what you were doing before the recession began so you really can't have a v-shaped recovery the way you had in 1982 when the interest rate went town 20%, choked up activity and then fell back down to 10% and act returned. stuart: why-- >> what we have is much more like 2001 and a bubble popped and you've got to crawl your way out of it. >> we cut taxes and crew with private enterprise and a couple of wars and we had-- >> stuart, we have added-- stuart, we have added more jobs in the last four years, by more than 1 million than we did in the first four years of the bush administration. stuart: all right. >> following the policies you're describing. stuart: there's no poi

is not measured in words. real change is measured in achievements and four years ago candidate obama promised to do so very much. but he has fallen so very short. he promised to be a post-partisan president. but he became the most partisan, blaming, attacking, dividing. he said he would focus on creating jobs. instead he focused on obamacare which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half. then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.2% right now. today we learned it actually is.9%. that is nine million jobs what short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. unemployment is higher today than on the day barack obama took office. [booing]. he promised to propose a plan to save social security and medicare from insolvency. he didn't. rather than he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for his vaunted obamacare. [booing] he said he would lower health insurance premiums for the average family. by $2500 a year by now. actually by now they are now 3,000 higher for an aver
at the obama rallies they're shouting four more years, four more years. i just heard you, we're shouting four more days, all right? [applause] we're so very grateful to you and to people frankly across the country for all that you've done, for all they have done to give yourselves to this campaign. as you know this is not just about paul and me. this is about america. it is about the future we're going to leave to our children. we thank you and we ask you to stay at it all the way to the finish line because we're going to win on tuesday night. [cheers and applause] you know the closing hours of a campaign have a dynamic all their own. a lot of voters have known for some time who they were going to vote for but there are others just now putting aside the demands of their daily life and considering how their vote will affect their own life, the life of their children, and of course the course of the country that we love. and we asked them and you, to look beyond the speeches, and the attacks and the ads, look to the record, to the accomplishments and the failures, and the judgements. words are
back on the agenda. >>> i know the obama folks are chanting four more years but our cannot is this: five more days. >> reporter: as you mentioned earlier, the death totally does unfortunately continue to rise, right now, at least 157 people have died from this storm in both the caribbean and the united states. now tonight, there are still more than 3 million people without power on the east coast. kasia? >> wells fargo bank is saying that they're waving late fees for those affected by hurricane sandy. and it donates a million dollars for help with relief efforts. they can make donations to -- the bay area -- to help victims of the storm, some left this morning from january. >> say meneta airport. more than 60 volunteers deployed from the east coast. the american red cross is saying that they're helping storm victims, blood donations are up 25%. another top peen states official now faces charges linked to the childhood sexual abuse scandal. graham spanner was charged today with conspiracy, and -- prosecutors say, he and two others deliberately gave false testimony to a grand jury.
administration. certainly, we are now four years past the start of the obama administration, and i think we have had sufficient time to address the concerns. the fact of the matter is the economy has not improved to the degree we have averaged 8% over and the entire term of president obama's tenure in office. good continue to look for change that will create those jobs and get this economy moving again while also addressing the tremendous debt that this country has. $16 trillion in debt increased over $5 trillion under president obama. if we have another four years of obama, the national debt will exceed $20 trillion. this is a horrible thing to give to our children, our grandchildren and great- grandchildren. we just cannot keep going with these tax policies. host: one last call for you on the independent line from michigan. victoria, you are wrong with mr. bennett of the ohio republican party. caller: i wanted to make a clarification for a caller that called in earlier that had a question about the interpretation that republicans are against unions. and not being made clear enough, i feel, to

obama making a case for his last four years, for his economic steward ship and we knew that we'd see romney making the complete opposite case, saying that the policies failed. the good news for the president is that these job numbers really reinforce the narrative that we're headed in the right direction. >> so you don't accept romney's attack on the job numbers that came out, 1070,000 new jobs? >> it's unfortunate but it's an attack they have to make because their entire argument is predicated on this idea that we're headed in the wrong direction. so these jobs numbers were good news for america, they were good news for the obama campaign but bad news for the romney campaign. they take whatever win he had in this bailout. >> krystal, when we look at the polls, the president is up in the swing states, up by 5 in wisconsin, more than 4 in pennsylvania, over 2 in ohio, 2 in iowa, and new hampshire and a slight edge in colorado. governor romney is ahead by a little over a point in florida and just barely beating obama in virginia. so if these polls prove right, the president edges out i
obama carried four years ago, as you know, has moved off the table. i think it's a big reason why the safe betting today in both parties is that florida is moving away from obama. the evangelical vote is 44% of the vote in north carolina. that state is now gone. he was the first democrat to carry it in 44 years. romney will carry that next tuesday. in ohio, 30% of the vote. but here's the real key, larry. it's what makes '12 different than '08. four years ago there were 17 million evangelical christians who didn't bother to go the polls. about half because they weren't registered to vote. half were registered but didn't vote. we estimate that 340,000 of those were in ohio, alone. this is a state that obama carried with only 262,000 vote margins. so if they show up, it's going to be a big factor that wasn't there four years ago. >> why is no one else covering this, ralph? you've got hard numbers. first of all, first of all, you're talking about wisconsin and iowa as well as ohio, as well as pennsylvania. i mean, romney, that's landslide territory. what i want to ask you is this. wh
to do, even president obama two years ago advocated extending the bush tax cuts because that's a wet blanket on the economy. we have to keep taxes low, expand job opportunity. >> moderator: governor king? king: nobodiments -- nobody wants to raise taxes. the situation with the debt, though, is one that we have to look at revenues as well as cuts. impossible to do it otherwise. i'm engaged with a projectx called the simpson bawls, a bipartisan effort led by alan simpson of wyoming, and bowles of south carolina. they propose cutting tax rates, eliminating loopholes, deductions, and exemptions, and reducing rates, but taking 8% of the revenues that are generated by that process, and putting that gex p against the debt. that's proven, responsible, and nobody wants to raise taxes, but we have to talk seriously about this, and some frame work like simpson bowles or the other plans out there on a bipartisan basis, i think, are going to be necessary to solve this problem. i think what we'll end up with is a fair tax system and lower rates across the board and more fairly distributed amongst
obama's mantra four years ago but has become a legitimate debate in this campaign about who really is going to bring change to washington, who can bring change to washing tonight. the president's remarks will be streaming live on foxnews.com if you'd like to listen to them in their entirety. and we'll continue to watch the candidates, it's no accident he's in ohio. it could all come down to ohio although the romney camp says it has a back up plan that they believe is more and more viable as they inch closer to tuesday. they believe they can get mitt romney into the white house even absent ohio but they sure would like to have it. in any event i want to get back to the news now, as we mentioned a moment ago during a campaign stop this morning the president complained about a romney campaign ad that is getting a lot of attention this week. the ad says that the u.s. bailed outcries her and that chrysler is going to build jeeps in china democrats call this a flat out lie, and we did a little fact checking on both. jim angle live in washington with the facts. hey, jim. >> reporter: hell
